Sober dating scott sherwood pennsylvania dating
I’d woken up beside busloads of unattractive strangers, and was more than ready to bid farewell to the drunken rants, crying jags, and ridiculous battles with boyfriends, friends, cab drivers, cashiers, busboys and bouncers.I thrilled at the thought of never having to experience another hangover.The idea for the site came from co-founder Paul Kole, who faced his own struggles while trying to date during recovery.Determined not to be the “creepy guy at the supermarket” hitting on girls, he joined forces with Shea, who already ran her own "Sexy and Sober" clothing and accessories line.When love and sex get mixed in, the whole shebang gets even stickier. But, sadly, Normal and I clash like hot cider and summertime.To be honest, dry dating hasn’t been as smooth as I’d hoped. Normal gives me uncomfortable side glances and keeps me at a perpetual distance. I learned this lesson the hard way after dating a man named Craig.
And while knocking boots with another sober person may seem like an ideal option, going out with someone from a meeting may be a step (or thirteen) towards disaster.
"We want people to have access to more than just what’s local or what they just happen across.” Shea and Kole are also hard at work on the Pink Cloud Foundation, a nonprofit that helps people in recovery "achieve their dreams"—through mentorship, resources or a small stipend to get their career going.
Through these various avenues, Shea and Kole are committed to connecting sober people all over the world, and look forward to the day they can put up the site’s own “e Harmony success story” billboards.
So it was probably a good thing that I finally decided to stop drinking in the summer of 2006.
By then I’d suffered more than my fair share of embarrassing nights out.
